The proposed redistricting maps were released earlier this week, meaning that some candidates wouldn’t know what seat they are running for following the previous deadline. The redistricting process for each state happens every 10 years, as required by the U.S. Constitution. Each state has to redraw their legislative and Congressional maps.
The new deadline will allow candidates to know the boundaries for the districts they represent. New maps have not yet been signed into law yet.
